New ASMR Group Started, Update on Facebook Page

I was on the Facebook group wall today, and after scrolling down a bit, saw a post that caught my eye. One of our community, Ryan (not former team member, Ryan Perez) has started a new ASMR group on Facebook, called “ASMR Off-Topic”. Why? He gives his reasons as follows:

“Hey Guys, I noticed that on certain occasions we refrained from getting into more in-depth conversations about politics, music, videos, etc. So I made another closed ASMR group (Yes I asked for and received Envelope’s permission) that’s sole purpose is for discussing those things without clogging up this group’s page. I am only letting members of this group join, so I assure you there will be no "outsiders" in it. Here is the link if you wish to join.”

Ryan is one of two admins on the new Facebook group – the other being Adam. You all know him by now! Ryan promises that anyone from the all ready existing group can join.

On a related note, you might have seen that Envelope started up a Facebook page back at the beginning of June. The Facebook page is a more formal, official location for ASMR. There is a wall, but only admins (of which I am one) can post on it. It’s no-reply by the look of it, and it is visible to everyone on the world wide web – unlike the groups, which are closed to the public and require a request to join. So we will start posting relevant, important messages on this page for the community and even those outside it, and the Facebook groups are there for the community to interact with one another on a more personal level. Ryan’s new Facebook group, quoting Ryan, will discuss more off-topic subjects that aren’t necessarily related to ASMR, and contain subject material that you would more likely post on your own Facebook wall.

I’ve started updating the Facebook Page more often now, too. It’s been idle for some time.

Does this all make sense? If not, send me an email or leave a comment and we’ll talk about it. :) Facebook itself has a more in-depth explanation on what the differences between pages and groups are.

Bookmarking and commenting only takes a little time, and you can also consider subscribing to my RSS feed for more!

I apologise if you are having trouble leaving a comment. Sometimes the comment system doesn't accept comments. I'm looking in to this right now, and hopefully can find a fix soon. There are several potentional reasons why this may be happening to some people, and one of them points in the direction of a recent Blogger update.

This is the main reason why I am unable to respond to comments left on the blog for the time being, but rest assured that I do read and approve comments that make it through. If you really need to get a hold of me, then visit my contact page in the sidebar to the right. Thanks.
